Lupo and Campisi Families

Postby sasnola » 04 Jun 2011, 22:41

I have been trying find info on my great-grandparents who lived in Sicily. My grand-parents names were Salvatore Lupo and Marianna (Marie, Maria, Mary) Campisi (Lupo). Through Ancestry.com, I found out they entered New Orleans, LA, in 1898 and 1895. They lived in Donaldsonville, LA & New Orleans, LA. Their children were born in Donaldsonville, LA, USA, from about 1903 - 1919. The children were Josephine, Frank, Francesca, Pauline, Marie, George, Anita, and Cecilia (my mother). My grand-parents were married in 1900. My grand-mother was born in Sicily in 1876 (Marianna, Maria, Marie, Mary) Campisi. I tried looking for my grand-mother's birth certificate in Sicily, hoping to get her parents' names through Ancestry.com. No luck! No one living knows the first names of my great-grandparents who lived in Sicily on both sides. If anyone recognizes the names above or can help in any way, please contact me. Thanks, Stephanie

Hi, I believe that this record could be abt your grandmother:
New Orleans Passenger Lists, 1820-1945
about Maria Campisi Name: Maria Campisi
Arrival Date: 20 May 1895
Age: 22
Gender: Female
Port of Departure: Palermo, Italy
Ship Name: Montebello
Port of Arrival: New Orleans, Louisiana
Last Residence: Sambuca
National Archives' Series Number: M259_81

seeming born around 1873 .. last residence Sambuca di Sicilia.. travelling alone..

another record but no much probable:
New Orleans Passenger Lists, 1820-1945
about Maria Campesi
Name: Maria Campesi (Campisi)
Arrival Date: 9 Nov 1891
Age: 20
Gender: Female
Port of Departure: Palermo, Italy
Ship Name: Italia
Port of Arrival: New Orleans, Louisiana

obviously we cannot be very sure, but the first is a probable record.. just my suggestion,
regards,
